Hanoi telephone booths get facelift

Many telephone booths in Hanoi have been decorated with colourful paintings carried out by young volunteers. They are the booths located on Phan Chu Trinh-Ly Thuong Kiet intersection which were covered by advertisements, affecting the image of the capital. The paintings are mostly natural scenes. Many people have shown strong support for the group’s work. Duong Bich Diep, a group member, said that they used the environmentally-friendly colours for the paintings. The work has been done following permission from the municipal authorities, Diep added. The group plans to expand the decoration to many streets in Hanoi such as Trang Tien, Ngo Quyen and Hang Khay.
